Hey,
iv got an XD 351 ute on gas. It has a GAS research twin throttle body twin convertor set up. Iv worked out my economy and its around 28-30L/per 100km. I live in the suburbs of sydney so alot of the driving is fairly smooth, with very few peak, busy traffic driving. It isnt worked (i think it only has about 140rwkw which is s*it, more of a cruiser with a nice sound). Does this seem abit high to people or just me? cheers

Take it and get it tuned, my old EF V8 used to get around 1200k's out of 120 litres on a trip with a single GRA carb with plenty of poke.

I used to get 400klms out of a tank. Not sure if that is good or not.
That was an XE 351 wagon. stage two set up and 2250 stall with 3.5 gears.

I'd replace all electrics as LPG needs great spark. Then get it tuned.
